The Nest Review


Life for an entrepreneur and his American family begin to take a twisted turn after moving into an English country manor.

In the first place, we learn early on that this relationship isn’t rainbows and butterflies, Rory (Jude Law) isn’t happy with the current dynamic of where they are in life, and Allison (Carrie Coon) is tired of being dragged across the world. But, Rory talks Allison into moving the family for the 4th time in 10 years.

Furthermore, when they move, we noticed that Rory lied to Allison about the reasoning behind the move, in which we also find out that Rory is struggling financially, and it’s taking a toll on the family. Rory put all his eggs in one basket, and like everything else right now, the basket is empty.

Next, I would love to talk about the chemistry between Rory and Allison, played by Jude Law and Carrie Coon. They play this unhappily married couple that has its highs and lows, but the lows are starting to take a toll on their relationship. Law/Coon dynamic is strong as both display remarkable acting within these roles as you felt the hate between Rory/Allison because they presented it to us so elegantly. Just a masterclass of acting between the two.

Lastly, a beautiful presentation was given to us by director Sean Durkin within the troubling world of a family that has it all but yet doesn’t at the same time. I was enamored with his presentation of being able to write his characters with enough depth for us to make us care what was going to happen but equally pissed at what wasn’t happening.

The Verdict:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
